Course description

This course teaches you the knowledge and skills to successfully architect and design complex enterprise level networks based on open networking industry standards. It teaches traditional network designs, as well as network designs that support cloud or converged environments which require flatter, simpler networks to support the bandwidth intensive, delay sensitive, server-to-server traffic flows.
The course teaches how to validate customer requirements and how to translate those requirements into a highly scalable, customized and secure network solution design. This includes switches, routers and wireless products, as well as server and storage network related components. For networks that are future-ready, capable of IT innovations, including cloud services, security, OpenFlow and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) with integrated wired and wireless solutions for seamless access.
This course is approximately 60% case studies and 40% lecture and learning activities.

Ideal candidate for this course

IT professionals with three or more years experience designing and architecting complex enterprise level networks. Recommended, but not required: experience with server and storage network related technologies.


For specific prerequisites and requirements to achieve any of the related certifications, see the certification description on the Certification and Learning website.


This course prepares you to:
  • Explain how open standards and the HPE FlexNetwork architecture addresses modern networking’s bandwidth-intensive, delay sensitive, mobility and BYOD demands.
  • Design a simplified, flatter physical topology that can handle an enterprise’s traffic volume and traffic patterns, including intensive server-to-server patterns anticipated for cloud and converged infrastructures.
  • Design efficient routing and multicast routing solutions for various enterprise needs.
  • Describe best practices for designing solutions from the Physical Layer to the Network Layer, by providing basic connectivity with some resiliency and good performance ensured by the proper bandwidth provisioning and topology design
  • Explain how HPE Virtual Connect (VC) modules help to simplify and optimize connections between servers and the data center LAN and SAN.
  • Design secure, integrated wired and wireless network solutions for seamless mobile access.
  • Develop a plan for implementing an HPE networking solution into either a new or an existing network.
  • Obtain the data and documentation required to understand a company’s general connectivity, availability, security, and application requirements based on information provided by the company’s key decision makers.
  • Design data center solutions including network, server, and storage virtualization and explain how virtualization and cloud computing are changing
